I had an hour to kill this weekend, and so I went to Old Navy and tried on half the store. Here are my favorites... two of which came home with me... and the rest which might after April 12th (Super Cash!):
This dress in white. Love love love. I just need a Tall (as discussed last month) and a deep discount. Realistically I probably won't get it because there are only a few weeks of the year where it's not too cold or too hot to wear it. But it's still hard to resist!
I nearly forgot I had these shorts on while I was in the dressing room. They are so light, they are perfect for hot summers. I was drawn to the tan pair, but I could have been convinced to buy the blue pair. The only drawback to these shorts is that I couldn't see myself wearing them with anything but a basic tank or tee. I'm not sure why that is a drawback, but it seems like it is.
While it's just a basic top, it would be ideal if I get a summer teaching gig (fingers crossed!). If I do, I'm buying this top in white (and maybe a few more colors) and wearing it with an a-line or maxi skirt every class.
This top was also available in pink in store; I tried both and had to use all my self-control to not go home with both. It's got a split back - so cute - and so perfect for summer.
Does anyone know how to get widgets to show up in the color you want to? I have never tried any of the pants from the Pixie line, but after hearing enough great words about it, I gave it a shot. The olive chinos are pretty much what I've been looking for for the past year and a half. The grey ones are tempting, too.

- The dress is light and comfy and makes you want to twirl in it. I think my shoulders are slightly too broad for it, but if it drops to $5, I'll make them fit.
- The shorts are a great print option, but I like the linen ones mentioned above more. (Hence the honorable mention.)
- The pants are so soft, but I can't realistically see myself wearing them anywhere but around the house and maybe running errands. (Read: a clear sign I don't need them.)
- Because I need another graphic tee. But really, if the heather oatmeal tee didn't remind me so much of a Magic Eye...
Have you been to Old Navy? What's catching your eye? If you have Super Cash, what are you holding out for?
